HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Specific points along the meridians are stimulated by means of hair-thin, sterile, single-use needles. The insertion of the needle is virtually pain-free, with a momentary pinching sensation occuring in some cases. Many clients report immediate improvement in their symptoms shortly after needle insertion.
Acupuncture points have specific therapeutic effects and often instantly calm a stressed mind or body. Qi and blood stagnation, the source of pain and internal organ dysfunction, is effectively removed by the influence of needles on flow of energy within meridians.
The insertion of acupuncture needles cause the central nervous system to return to relaxation or normal-function mode (parasympathetic nervous system). Chronic health problems, whether physcial or emotional, keep one in a constant state of "fight-or-flight" (sympathetic nervous system) and in this state healing is impossible.
Stress hormones/chemicals are produced by the brain in "fight-or-flight" mode and prevent the body from performing its naturally designed activity to heal and rebalance itself. This natural inclination to achieve homeostasis/health is restored by the influence of acupuncture on the flow of Qi and blood within the body.
Acupuncture also increases the amount of energy available, enhancing immunity and relieving the negative physical and emotional impact of unremitting stress.
Acupuncture steadily re-establishes parasympathetic nervous system mode (normal function), changing brain/body chemistry to produce natural healing. The deadly cycle of being in a continual state of stress is broken.
